Life is too great a gift to not live fully. It’s continuous learning and discovery, growing and changing. How well you navigate it all determines how high you SOAR. My mission is to help YOU SOAR.
– Anita D Russell
Between 2014 and 2018 several remarkable things happened in my life.
- I co-authored my first book, Motherhood Dreams and Success (2014), earning me the title International Best Selling Author
- I redefined my life based on a purposeful vision and mission
- I founded The Place to SOAR
- I became a Certified Life Coach
- I published my second book, Empower Your Life (2018), Amazon #1 Bestseller
My vision is to invest in the growth and development of people. I am on a mission to Help YOU SOAR!
To accomplish this vision and mission, I have created the following:
- The Place to SOAR TV in partnership with Princeton Community Television.
- The SOAR Values which are the foundation of The Place to SOAR.
- The SOAR Travel Ministry built on three principles – community, change and contribution.
- The SOAR Coaching Academy is client-centric and focused on cultivating change.
After 22 years with the same company things changed dramatically for me when I found myself reporting to a manager with a very different value system than my own. And for the first time in my career I felt disrespected in my work environment.
So, I did what every child of God does…I prayed about it and the answer from God was quite plain and simple: It’s time for you to move on. I realized that I had given all I had to give and gained all I had to gain and God was putting me on a different path in life
On February 1, 2013 I did something that many people believed to be unthinkable and terribly risky. I took early “retirement” from my 9-5 career and embarked on a journey to redesign my life; that is a rechartering of my life based on purpose. 2013 became my year to begin walking fully in my purpose for being, which I define as “Investing in the growth and development of people and helping YOU SOAR.”
Imagine designing a life where faith and business converge. I planted seeds along the way that are growing into a harvest of purpose that reflects my desire to allow God to be my BOSS in life.
That is to say I…
BELIEVE His word even when I don’t understand it.
OBEY His word even when I can’t explain why.
SPEAK His word even when it falls on deaf ears.
SERVE others through His word and realize this is my God-given purpose.
